Long time no talk!
We have been incredibly busy behind the scenes trying to overcome several challenges on many fronts. It has been a while since we put out one of those “keeping you up to date” posts but here it is:
PRODUCTION: Completing the financing for the show for one has proven to be much harder than anticipated. Location hunting - especially finding a suitable studio at a price we can afford - has also proved to be much more difficult and it is causing delays in production of the minisodes. We are trying to iron out the issues and we hope to resume a stable release of episodes soon. We will make it up to you by producing two more minisodes, one involving 8 Ball and a mysterious new character as well as TERRA NOVA episode. Meanwhile everyone is hard at work prepping for the moment they will called...
EVENTS: We will be attending Free Comic Book Day at Fantasy Realm in Cornwall, Ontario and at La Boîte à BD de Laval this year. The event is on Saturday, May 3rd this year. We also contribute a cover for la Boîte à BD Free Comic Book Day special edition comic featuring Johnny Comix, of course, but also our very own Fleur-de-Lys, illustrated by Brad Coffey. We will also be attending the Ottawa Comicon and the Moncton Comicon this spring.
PROMOTION: The Nordik figurine is now on sale at 50% off! Get one while supplies last! It also helps us fund the show so everybody wins! MEMBERS get an even better deal in the SPECIAL OFFERS section.
COMICS: Our LEGACIES trade paperback is now available for preorder - it will be available for the Free Comic Book Day.

A little less than a month ago, we were contacted by several hotnorthians from New Brunswick informing us of a new comicon in the area, the East Coast Comic Expo. It was going to be their first year altogether. Who says first time usually says problems but this year our focus was the East Coast and we had decided we would try to do as many events in the East as possible. So the fans wanted us there (at least 15 of them), it fitted the travel plans for this year and it sounded like fun to be part of a first time ever Con!
So it was with great excitement that we headed down the 20 towards Moncton New Brunswick last week to be part of the Moncton adventure! And what a thrill it was! This convention was so well organized that it put to shame several much bigger events we attended. Even though it was only one day, it was quite busy and it helped generate sufficient revenues to cover all of our travel expenses. Kudos to all the organizers and a special mention to Georgio for throwing such a nice party afterwards!
The Heroes of the North wish you an even better Second Edition!
